England by Bike: May 4 - June 6, 2003

For Mike and me this bike tour was a long time in coming but it was everything we hoped -- big hills and passes (e.g.Chimney Bank and Hardknott), fantastic scenery (e.g.Yorkshire Dales, Brecon Beacons), the friendliest people (e.g. the Geordies!), and history writ large on the landscape (e.g.Stonehenge, the White Horse, Hadrian's Wall). Five weeks was too short.
